May is Mental Health Awareness Month. There are many stigmas surrounding individuals with mental health disorders. Many people admit that they are afraid of what they do not understand.
Awareness: People who suffer from mental health disorders, whether it be depression, schizophrenia, or any other number of disorders, are not ‘weird’ or ‘crazy’. The brain of these individuals simply functions differently than those who have a stable mental health status.
These individuals do not need judgments they need compassion and assistance to help them adjust to their mental health illnesses.
If you or someone you know is dealing with mental health issues please seek help. I am available at firstname.lastname@example.org. There is help and hope for you.
